For the last 3 years Becoming Ultra has been chronicling, inspiring, coaching, and sharing all things for beginner ultra runners.
This got us thinking, some of the runners we inspired to get out there and do epic things have done just that. They have conquered their first ultra and there is a good chance they are looking for a different challenge.
We also know there are plenty of regular runners that listen and reach out because they love the stories so much.
Well, Becoming Ultra [Off The Grid] is for you. You want a big challenge? Okay, here we go. Spots are very limited so once you read this page you probably should hold your spot!
What is the [Off The Grid] Experience?
Well, way back in Season 4, when Rebecca was chasing cutoffs for a solid 8 hours, Scott Jones and Ricky Haro had a lot of time to get to know each other. The seed to bring bigger and more unique experiences to this community was planted. With the storytelling, coaching, and accountability from Becoming Ultra and the Wilderness Guiding expertise and running pedigree from Ricky, we came up with a hell of a concept.
The OTG Experience will be a 2-3 month deep dive coaching experience. Not only are we going to be coaching you to be physically ready for the route(more on the route below) , we will be coaching on survival skills, mental toughness, wilderness first aid, logistics, overland route finding, and more.
Who are we accepting?
The route is not an ultra distance. It’s around 22 miles. We would like to know that your current level of fitness is within striking distance of the route we document in the descriptions below. Not sure if you are a good fit? Just register, the mountains will let you know. Training starts in June.
Who are the organizers?
Scott Jones (founder of Becoming Ultra) and Ricky Haro (Rare Earth Adventures). Both avid outdoorsmen who have led routes up big mountains, directed races, coached athletes, and so much more. I mean Ricky is a certified badass. They will be doing all the prep work and coaching!!!
We were initially going to roll out information on the route slowly but we are too excited to not share this bad boy!
